Rock the Runway

| June 17, 2015 | Parties National

A trendy lineup of looks from David Yurman, Roberto Cavalli, St. John and more attracted a sold-out crowd of well-heeled philanthropists for Childhelp’s annual fashion show and luncheon at the Island Hotel. The glam guests of honor? St. John co-founder Marie Gray, along with Images Salon owners Ron and Al Perez, and Mark McArdle. Gray was honored not only for her stylish sensibilities but also her charitable efforts—she’s been a longtime supporter of the nonprofit’s work to end child abuse. And the Perezes and McArdle were recognized for their 13-year commitment to the organization. Every September, their parlor hosts a cut-a-thon in which its stylists donate their earnings to Childhelp. Also in vogue: the blush-colored decor, a $2,500 grand-prize shopping bonanza at South Coast Plaza won by Yvette Colby and a more than $235,000 fundraising total. Truly chic. -Photos by Ann Chatillon
